Many people have exotic and interesting screen names so I have always been curious how people came up with them.

I had no imagination when I came up with my screen name.
It is my first initial and last name.

My screen name is the name of a small town I lived in when I was a child.

Mines very easy. My initials, and my husbands and my year we were born. Yes, I'm old.
Love the idea tramserran.

Mine's a small town that means a lot to me, plus it's on water, and at the time I made my "handle" I was putting numbers in all of my screen names. LOL

When I came up with my screen name, my children called me mommers. That name was taken so I came up with mommerj; J being the first letter of my last name.

My screenname is German, meaning in English Turtle and Turtles are my favorite animals! The number 68 stands for the year of my birth!

My screen name goes back many years! I first came up with this one when the internet was young I created it as an email address for when I needed to register an account on game sites and places where it wasn't important that they know my real name. Just my first two initials and the word spam.

Schildkroete68 we're born the same year

We have 2 miniature long-haired dachshunds and they are loaded with personality. I love dachshunds! It was a no-brainer for me.

I love gardening . One year I planted an unusual vegetable called "romanesco broccoli" a.k.a. broccoflower. Such a pretty chartreuse colour, and I loved the way the florets appeared in near-fractal formation. I almost hated to cut it for harvesting .

Now I live in a tiny apartment, so gardening is limited to a few pots on the windowsill

MrsSharon was what the kindergartners called me when I worked as a classroom aide. My last name is difficult for little ones to pronounce (think rhymes with truck) so this was a wonderful solution. It has traveled with me for 20 years now.

Mine just stands for my first and middle name, Rebecca Jayne.

broccoflower, I was sure that you must be a fan of the game, Fallout, because it has a plant that you collect called a Broccoflower.

chumann is gaelic and depending the dialect, means darling or friend to/of...

So, a chumann faery can either mean a darling faery, or a friend of faery. You decide which
